The Joint Commission Enhances Quality Check Website

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Patients looking for information about where to go for their health care needs can now find an even more complete listing of health care organizations on The Joint Commission's Quality Check(R) website (

The Joint Commission's Quality Check(R) website now includes health care organizations that are not accredited by The Joint Commission. The addition of organizations that are not accredited by The Joint Commission provides health care consumers with more information and highlights the value of accreditation. The enhanced Quality Check(R) website is now the most comprehensive national directory of health care facilities available.

In addition, Quality Check(R) users can locate health care providers by the types of services they provide, for example, hospice or dementia care. The "Search by Service" feature is in addition to the existing search function by name and type of provider. The inventory of services on the application for an accreditation survey has been expanded to support the "Search by Service" feature.

Thousands of people use Quality Check(R) each month to find information about the nearly 15,000 accredited hospitals, home health agencies, health care clinics and other types of health care organizations that have earned The Joint Commission "Gold Seal of Approval(TM)." The performance of all Joint Commission accredited organizations is reflected in an organization-specific Quality Report that is available on Quality Check(R). Each report provides details about an organization's accreditation status, compliance with the National Patient Safety Goals, and if the organization is a hospital the report includes information to compare its compliance with the National Quality Improvement Goals such as giving heart attack patients aspirin within a specified time frame.

Founded in 1951, The Joint Commission seeks to continuously improve the safety and quality of care provided to the public through the provision of health care accreditation and related services that support performance improvement in health care organizations. The Joint Commission evaluates and accredits nearly 15,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including more than 8,000 hospitals and home care organizations, and more than 6,300 other health care organizations that provide long term care, assisted living, behavioral health care, laboratory and ambulatory care services. The Joint Commission also accredits health plans, integrated delivery networks, and other managed care entities. In addition, The Joint Commission provides certification of disease-specific care programs, primary stroke centers, and health care staffing services. An independent, not-for- profit organization, The Joint Commission is the nation's oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care. Learn more about The Joint Commission at
